Dr. Ivan Savin
Ivan is a postdoctoral research fellow within the ERC project “Behavioral-evolutionary analysis of climate policy: Bounded rationality, markets and social interactions” (EVOCLIM) at ICTA-UAB. Before that, he served within the KIT-BETA project devoted to general purpose technologies, creativity and sustainability (2015-2018) and was a postdoc for four years at the Friedrich Schiller University and the Graduate College "The Economics of Innovative Change" (2011-2015).
He received his PhD from the Department of Economics of the Justus Liebig University of Giessen (Chair of Econometrics, supervisor Prof. Dr. Peter Winker) in 2011. In 2017 he habilitated at KIT with the thesis titled "Applications of Evolutionary Optimization and Modelling in Economics"
